Beauty Entrepreneur creates hair extension smart machine and mobile app inspired by UBER technology
Mane Vendor smart machine to increase salon profitability and customer convenience
Many styling salons fail to sustain well-stocked inventories that cater to the needs of their customers. Issues arise when salon customers cannot acquire hair for weaves and extensions, forcing them to find an inconvenient third-party seller. Meanwhile, salons suffer revenue losses because they are often unable to meet demand. However, the smart vending machine solves this issue by not only being an on-site seller but also by performing all transactions, creating no extraneous work for busy salon employees.
Moreover, Ellis has made the machine even more user-friendly by creating a connected mobile app that will rival UBER in its utility. Not only will clients be able to find and receive a variety of high quality premium hair, salon-owners will also be able to increase their company profit easily and quickly. The machine connects with the app to provide real-time information on customer purchases, machine inventory, and geo-location. Overall, the combined potential of the machine and the app will expand salon clientele by directing customers to salons and encouraging them to purchase and use the hair products.
The Mane Vendor is already dispensing from salon locations in five states across the US. Ellis is scheduled to visit Southern and Midwest States in her upcoming 2015 City to City Tour. The hair industry is a largely untapped source of advancement that has not yet fully integrated with the age of technology. The tour is an exciting chance for salons to take advantage of the Mane Vendor and reap the benefits of the product. The company’s easy financing option is an invitation for all motivated salon owners and business savvy entrepreneurs desiring a constant stream of income to invest in the machine. The tour will be a direct licensing opportunity for entrepreneurs that want to be in business within 45 days for under $25K.
In a nine billion dollar industry with few competitors and few convenient customer options, Ellis offers a solution that is both economically competitive and highly marketable. The vending machine has already received celebrity attention and endorsement from stylist Kim Kimble and is on the fast track to changing the hair care and distribution business. “Our mission is to help improve numerous salons throughout the nation.”
